  • As you may have guessed, we’re big fans of baseball here at Sullivan Tire.  From our yearly Red Sox magnets, to spending St. Patrick’s day at Fenway South in Ft. Lauderdale, to our great relationship with Dustin Pedroia, we enjoy every aspect of America’s favorite pastime.

    This summer, we took love of baseball to a whole new level by hosting A Day at the Park for our employees and their families.  All employees who have been with the company for 5 or more years were invited to spend a day with the Portland Sea Dogs, New Hampshire Fisher Cats or the Pawtucket Red Sox.

    Employees and their family members were treated to a delicious BBQ lunch before each game.

    At each game, a Sullivan Tire employee had the honor of throwing out the first pitch. At the Portland Sea Dogs game it was John Wills, the Assistant Manager of the Portland, ME Commercial location at the Fisher Cats it was Ryan Ward, a newly minted 5 year tech of the Derry, NH retail location, and at the Paw Sox it was Chris Bailey, a technician from the Bedford, MA retail location.

    Each day at the park held a fun surprise; employees David Bubar of Bangor, ME Wholesale and Andy Benenato, the manager of Plaistow, NH retail won autographed Dustin Pedroia baseballs, and the Fisher Cats provided our New Hampshire guests to VIP tour of the stadium.

    The weather was perfect for each Day at the Park, and a great time was had by all!
